We chose to make geoboards this week to bring in a bit of math to our learning playdate. First, everyone had to measure and mark where to place their nails.
Next, it was Hammer Time!
|Oops, had to pull out a crooked nail.|
|Big Sis wore the Bob the Builder hat.|
Then, it was time to use the geoboards with rubberbands to make some shapes.
|We talked about and named most of the shapes Boogs made on his board.|
|I made one, too.|
The kids were very engaged in this project. It took quite a bit of time to hammer in all of those nails. When they were finished they asked if they could use the safety goggles for a project of their own. They wanted to protect their eyes while burying each other in pebbles.
Boogs and I are going to use our geoboards at home to practice making and naming shapes.
